My Hero Academia Cast Announcement

Never fear for we have A-Class voice actors and ADR staff who can bring My Hero Academia some voice acting justice! As announced on Dubbletalk, here are the voice actors for the new class of heroes in the upcoming Broadcast Dub of My Hero Academia. The first episode of the Broadcast Dub comes on 5/4/16!

 

Synopsis:

There’s a new hero in town! From Studio BONES, the creators of Fullmetal AlchemistCowboy Bebop and Space Dandy, comes My Hero Academia, a superhero origin story that soars to the top of the class.

 

Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where 80% of the population has some kind of superpowered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam—nothing a little private tutoring from the world’s mightiest hero can’t solve.

J. Michael Tatum

IIDA

Tatum-Convention Headshot Characters_Iida
Nurtured on anime classics from the tender age of Star Blazers, et al, this reclusive fanboy-turned-voice actor/writer/ADR director/flake extraordinaire spent more years than he cares to remember in what might charitably be described as freefall before landing, mostly by accident, smack dab on the industry of his dreams. To this day, some believe the small crater made by the impact remains the source of his power.Discovered by Funimation warhorse and visionary ADR director Christopher Bevins, who cast him as Rikichi in 2005’s Samurai 7, Tatum’s inexplicable luck has held long enough to see his flag hoisted on a slew of dream roles, most notably Kyoya Otori in the hit English language dub of Ouran High School Host Club, suave, demonic Sebastian Michaelis in Black Butler and the equal parts maniacal/vulnerable Okarin Rintarou from Steins;Gate. Other characters the man still can’t believe he’s had the crazy good fortune to play include: Doumeki in XXXHolic, Jiro Mochizuki in Black Blood Brothers, Isaac Dian in Baccano!, Both God Eneru and Dalton in the new dub of One Piece, Komui Lee in D-Gray Man, Dororo in Sgt. Frog, the titular loveable savage of Heroic Age, Ryosuke Takahashi in Initial D, Lawrence Kraft in Spice and Wolf, Zarbon in Dragon Ball Z Kai, Scar in Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and Sir Hammerlock in the videogame juggernaut Borderlands 2. His vocal “stylings,” much to the chagrin of drama teachers everywhere, he’s sure, have also been featured in Romeo X Juliet, Speed Grapher, Trinity Blood, Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple, Black Cat, Nabari no Ou, Ghost Hunt, School Rumble, The Tower of Druaga, Aquarion, Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicles, Shuffle, Shigurui, Glass Fleet, Mushishi, Soul Eater, along with feature- length films such as Vexille, Summer Wars, and Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker, among many others.And as if being involved with so many awesome shows wasn’t enough, in late 2007 the fluky so-and-so tempted fate by officially branching out into ADR directing and adaptive scriptwriting for Funimation as well. His ADR directing credits to date include Aquarion, Jyu-oh-Sei, Romeo X Juliet, Big Windup, Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne and Shikabane Hime (Corpse Princess), while his writing credits include substantial work on Ouran High School Host Club, Heroic Age, Initial D, Blassreiter, Ga Rei: Zero, Hero Tales, Legend of the Legendary Heroes, Fractale, Deadman Wonderland, Steins;Gate and Dragon Ball Z Kai.In early 2010 he teamed up with Terri Doty and Stephen Hoff to launch That Anime Show, a web-based chat show centered on colorful, often diabolically unhinged interviews with friends and colleagues within the dubbing industry, all episodes of which can be downloaded for free at http://thatanimeshow.com/Ever the workaholic, Tatum is currently burning the midnight oil on a number of exciting projects due for release later this year. And before you ask, the “J” stands for… Well, it stands for whatever you’d like it to.

Felecia Angelle Characters_Toru

Felecia Angelle is a voice over actor and suspected Sea Witch. We can’t pin anything on her for sure, but she’s voicing adorable characters and there’s a mute mermaid making complaints. You do the math. 

Her non-acting hobbies include pretending she could do better than TV cooking show contestants, playing videogames (poorly), and buying more books than she could ever possibly read. You can hear her voice all up in your anime, as well as coming through the TV to sell toys to your kids. 

Her recent work includes The Hero Emilia/ Emi Yusa in The Devil Is A Part-Timer!, Perona in One Piece, Shinoa in Seraph of the End, Nozomi Moritomo in The Rolling Girls, Supreme Kai of Time in Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, Aoi Asahina in  Danganronpa: The Animation and Alex Bendetto in Gangsta. 

Felecia’s also recently begun a foray into the world of directing as the Assistant ADR Director for Blood Blockade Battlefront, One Piece, and Attack on Titan: Junior High, the Lead ADR Director for Sky Wizards Academy and Co-ADR Director of Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash

Synopsis


From the studio that produced Attack on Titan comes a captivating historical action thriller based on a Phillip K. Dick Award winning novel by Project Itoh. In an alternate version of 19th century London, the world has been revolutionized by “corpse reanimation technology” creating armies of undead who serve the living as laborers across the globe.

In an attempt to revive his dearly departed friend, young medical student John Watson becomes obsessed with replicating the work of Dr. Victor Frankenstein—the legendary corpse engineer whose research produced the only re-animated corpse to possess a soul. But when his illegal experiments put him at odds with the British government, Watson is drafted into a worldwide race to find the lost research notes of Victor Frankenstein before the secrets of the human soul fall into the wrong hands.
